the Dao of Atheism :jeffers' petroglyph, pre-dakota, minnesota : the Shaman Atheist 21/81


The universe acts only according to the laws of nature
even though such laws may seem chaotic and elusive.

still there are patterns.
still there is life.
Mysterious and obscure
still it contains the essential.
Power that is immeasurable
still is true and active

from before the beginning
til after the end,
through the next beginning and ending.

How do any of us know this?
Look inside.

How does one practice atheism?

If we do not bash believers
what is there left to do?

If others are not shown the errors of their beliefs
how will we save the world?

If I stop working on the ignorance of others
what else is there?
